Product Reviews
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product and Order Process AJ Madison provided and excellent ordering process, follow-up and order notification. Their customer service representative is some of the best I have experienced without a doubt! And, of course, their pricing was unmatched. I really like doing business with this company 6/9/10
Rated 4 out of 5 See it first I wish I got to see this model before I bought it. Consumer Reports gave it a great rating, but no one in the area carried it. There is no comparison with this fridge to what it replaced my GE Monogram. The only problem I am having is with this is the water and ice dispenser. If you are using crushed, it sometimes gets jammed. The water is too close to the cube dispenser, and is messy after you fill up with crushed ice or water. I think they should raise the height of the dispenser, and make it so it can fit a pitcher. Also add a fast fill option. 6/22/10
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not stainless stell on the sides Only the front appears to be stainless steel (magnets do attach to it though), but the sides clearly arent. 8/2/10
Rated 4 out of 5 by hardest purchase decision I purchased several products from AJ Madison in August of 2009. All were delivered white glove--superior ordering and customer experience. My contractor installed into my new kitchen, and I began using this model. This model's only drawback is the water filter--which the water from my tap almost tastes better. Just run 3 gallons through for watering your plants and dump the first tray of ice with the new filter. The model is difficult to find in Retail stores unless online and under Kenmore Elite--which is where the competitor used the Whirlpool refrigerator, charged more money and it is really the whirlpool in disguise. The difference lies in the bells and whistles on the Elite--plastic shelvs vs metal on whirlpool, microban container on elite, non on whirlpool, pix on internet. Most online companies will not show the inside of the product or price and customer reviews--AJ Madison is the exception, both in product authenticity and value. Other retailers want to sell you the product plus Maintenance agreement where they make a larger commission. AJ Madison hides nothing, same warranty from retailers less than 5 times what AJ offers, plus competent people work on your appliance. Although not recommended by company, but I use windex to clean stainless spraying on paper towel not appliance--takes off finger prints. 8/9/10
